So I know “Kate” can be a shortened version of Catherine and Kaitlyn, but could it be a nickname for anything else. I really like the nickname “Kate,” but we already have a Catherine and a Kaitlyn in the family, neither of whom have ever gone by Kate.

You could just name her Katie and call her Kate. Or just Kate and not have a formal name. I’m Katherine and go mostly by Katie but my parents and a few others call me Kate, I never ever go by Katherine except for filling out offical documents so I almost wish I was just Katie.

I have a friend who’s daughter is just Kate, and I dont think you need to give a “formal” name just to shorten it to the one you like.

Kate is a nice name on its own! Doesn’t need to just be a nickname

If you want her name to be Kate then I’d just call her Kate.

I am a Katherine who goes by Kate, and wish that was my legal name. Sounds like you prefer the name Kate to the other names as well so maybe you should consider keeping her legal name as Kate. Clearly I am biased in this, but I felt that Kate (compared to some of the longer versions) can be very elegant and classic.

Kate can be a standalone name 🙂

My name is Kate, but since I was born my family has called me Katie so that’s what I go by. My parents called me Kate because we live in Montreal and Kate is better said in French, for some reason French people can’t say Katie properly lol. But I’ve wished all my life that my parents just called me Katie because that’s what rings normal to me.
